Afrix style is a modern fashion brand inspired by Africa and its distinctive cultures, founded by Legan Nyabenda and Claire Nyabenda.
We brought Afrix style to life as we saw a lack of African representations in Australia. We wanted to make modern clothing with these influences so more can enjoy the colours and styles. We are proud to have a large range of shoes, earrings and men and women’s clothing all uniquely styled, with many elements and products hand made and sourced from Tanzania. We work closely with the people there to create unique products that are stylish and suitable for the Australian people, whilst ensuring the people there are well recognised and rewarded for their work and efforts.
With Legan growing up in Africa, seeing the many bright colours people were proud to wear brought a cheerful smile to his face and he was excited to spread and share the joy and culture further.
Not only do our products include colour and African features to your day we also ensure the quality, style and joy. So our shoes are comfortable to wear all day, our clothes can be worn in diverse settings and our earrings can add vibrancy to your outfit.
We are proud to have brought a little bit of Africa to Australia and are looking forward to widening the uniqueness and joy further to more people. Keep an eye out, we are expanding! We have our wonderful customers to thank for this.
